Badger Campaign Takes in $17,000 in Late Contributions

Late contributions of $1,000 or more are required to be reported within 24 hours. So far, the only candidate that has reported late contributions is San Leandro mayoral candidate Orval "OB" Badger, with contributions totalling $17,000. Badger's campaign received two loans of $5,000 each from Joseph Flynn and Jeanne Souchak. Flynn is a retired consultant and member of the San Leandro Human Resources Commission. Jeanne Souchak is listed as a retired individual from Pebble Beach.

Contributions of $1,000 each were received from Dale and Donna Reed, Davini & Co., Livermore company Golden State Landscaping, architect Daniel Hale, San Francisco firm D.W. Hilborn, Inc., San Francisco attorney Louis Haas, and Frederick Weissberg.

Dale Reed is the owner of Acme Scale and a member of the San Leandro Planning Commission. His wife Donna is on the San Leandro Library-Historical Commission. Davini & Co. is owned by David D. Davini, the treasurer for Badger's campaign. As of 2004, Frederick Weissberg was Chairman of the Board of Directors and President of Dover Investments Corp., a San Francisco-based residential real estate development company.

Notable expenditures included $2,700 to K. Mitchell in San Francisco for campaign consulting. This appears to be Kaidra Mitchell, who previously received $1,700 for campaign consulting from Badger's campaign.

As of May 25, 2006, Badger reported spending $58,423.04 since January 2006 and had $1,949.49 on hand.
